If you like our healthy natural peanut butter then you will love our peanut butter with chia seeds. Our newest delicacy combines our popular natural peanut butter, which is free of sugar, unhealthy hydrogenated trans fats, ecologically highly questionable palm oil and added artificial preservatives, with the popular superfood chia seeds, which was already highly valued and used as a staple food and remedy by the ancient Maya - and for a good reason.
Chia seeds contain a wide variety of healthy and essential nutrients, minerals, trace elements and vitamins that can hardly be found in any other food in this composition and concentrations. There is a good reason for the fact that the word chia means "power" in the language of Maja - and in Mexican folk medicine it is still believed that a teaspoon of chia seeds will be enough to energize a person for the whole day.
Chia seeds are not only rich in high-quality vegetable protein, which, unlike many other vegetable sources of protein, contains all of the essential amino acids in balanced amounts, but is also one of the richest plant sources of essential omega-3 fatty acids which your body can not produce itself, but urgently needs for healthy cell membranes and healthy brain and nerve cells. While other herbal omega-3 sources are usually known for a very low conversion rate into the type of omega-3 fatty acid, your body needs (EPA), a supplementation with chia seeds was shown to increase the levels of EPA in the human body by 40%.
Omega-3 fatty acids have numerous other health benefits, including a pronounced anti-inflammatory effect that can relieve joint pain, a strong antioxidant effect that can protect the cells of your body from free radical damage and slow your aging process, a better memory and many more. Doctors and scientists agree that one could write one or more books about these health benefits. Chia seeds also have a high content of the amino acid tryptophan, which is a precursor of the "happiness hormone" serotonin in the human brain and can improve your mood. In addition, chia seeds contain rich amounts of calcium, iron, zinc and vitamin B3. Chia seeds contain 34% of healthy fibre in form of well-tolerated soluble fibre, which is known to have a very positive influence on a healthy gut flora, to lower your cholesterol levels, to reduce high blood pressure and to calm irritated mucous membranes of stomach and intestines. In addition, this kind of fibre has a satiety-promoting effect, while slowing the digestion of carbohydrates and thereby regulating your blood sugar level.
Apart from all these health benefits, we should not forget that our Peanut Butter Chia is also a delicious treat that can shine with the traditional taste of homemade natural peanut butter that your grandmother and great-grandmother used to love. While most other healthy vegetable sources of omega-3 fatty acids, such as flaxseed, have a fairly strong taste, chia seeds do not have a strong taste and are therefore perfectly compatible with natural peanut butter. And for hard-training male athletes it should be of particular interest that chia seeds are completely free of undesirable phytoestrogens that you will find in flaxseeds!
Our Peanut Butter Chia is the ideal combination of healthy ingredients with numerous health benefits and the traditional taste of the good old days. Whether you are looking for health benefits and a better well-being, a delicious spread you can enjoy every day, or the combination of both - our Peanut Butter Chia will be the perfect choice for you.
